Another long walk from the MRT (at Luzhiang) to the corner of Linjiang and Tonghua streets for an uninspiring selection of food vendors scattered among the non-food touristy offerings. Electric-orange glazed sweet potatoes (NT30 for a bag) weren't half as sweet as they looked.
Nuts and Tubers Vendor Linjiang-Tonghua Night Market, Taipei
Amid the many clothing vendors, Raohe St. features more Japanese food stalls than most night markets in Taipei; witness this eggy item with shrimp, perhaps pork, plus mayo and bonito flakes (NT40). (I might have called it an okonomiyaki, but the characters above the stall didn't label it such.)
Griddled Scramble Stall Raohe St. Night Market, Taipei
A longish walk from the Houshanpi MRT station (even longer if you take the wrong turn that I did), the Raohe St. Night Market was fairly quiet on a Monday evening. These otherwise ordinary sweet potato fries (small order; NT30) struck a surprising note, however, after a dusting of plum powder.
Shrimp and meatball dumplings (three for NT50) made for a fine combo, though once they're sliced open, wrangling a shrimp, some meatball, and some slippery wrapper into a single mouthful is very nearly impossible without a soup spoon.
